. will the investigation put a dent into future sales? phil lebeau to answer that question for us at the auto show in los angeles. phil? >> hi, tyler. what's interesting is we're hearing a lot from elon musk on twitter today. we'll give you a taste of that in a little bit. let's focus on what this investigation regarding the model s is about. it's focusing on two battery fires here in the u.s. one last month just outside of seattle, washington, that's where this video is from, and another one earlier this month in tennessee. both of those fires are the focus of the investigation. by the way, nobody was hurt or killed in either of those fires, of which elon musk referenced on twitter today, he's been tweeting out about the fact that they are now the focus of an investigati investigation. he writes what makes this incredibly unjust is that the model s to date has the best safety record of any car on the road an then puts in parentheses, no injuries or deaths ever. it is still unclear whether this investigation will actually lead to a recall. it's not uncommon that they will do an investigation and then at

, our own phil lebeau with more details on that. >> reporter: good morning, kate. we're here at the l.a. auto so where as they get ready to open the show, a lot of talk is about what's happening with tesla. a few minutes ago, this tweet from elon musk, the ceo of tesla. he says why does a tesla fire with no injury get more media headlines than 100 gas car fires that kill hundreds of people per year? what he's referencing is the fact that the national highway traffic safety administration has opened a formal investigation into the model s battery fires. in doing so the agency said the investigation was prompted by recent incidents in washington state and tennessee that resulted in battery fires due to undercarriage strikes with roadway debris. nobody was injured, nobody was killed in either of the tesla model s fires and tesla this morning said it asked the national highway traffic safety association to launch a formal investigation. it brings up the question, will there be a rrl? this is what elon musk said at the deal book contract just last week when andrew ross sorkin asked him abo

. another fire in a model "s." cnbc's phil lebeau is following this story. hi, phil. >> reporter: hi, tyler. this is one that's still under investigation. we want to show you some pictures from the tennessee highway patrol. this is of the model "s" after the fire was extinguished. it happened yesterday, yesterday afternoon, in murfreesboro, tennessee. the driver, by the way, escaped this without any injury. the model "s" did not hit another car in this incident. instead is drove over a trailer hitch. that hitch that apparently punctured the battery compartment underneath the model "s." and again, the driver escaped without injury. this is the third model "s" fire in the last six weeks. remember there was one in suburban seattle, then one in mexico and now this one. tesla is sending investigators to tennessee to look into what's happened. what about the federal government? will it now investigate the model "s"? the ntsb says it will contact the local authorities who are looking into the incident to determine if there are vehicle safety implications that merit agency action. keep in mind, tes

! and bad condition, too. phil lebeau, i've got it tell you what, i don't know who those pilots were, but tip of the hat to them because that was a short runway for a very large plane. >> reporter: you bet that they were all the way backed up to the end of the runway. i can't hell from here, but you've got to think that they were. that was a crew they brought in, the other crew getting its rest after landing last night. what they're going to do now, brian, they're going to circle around a couple times and then land at mcconnell air force base which, yes, it's only nine or ten miles away. but they'll land there, then they'll taxi over to spirit air where they're going to unload the parts that they have brought from italy for the dreamliner, pick up other parts and then go off on their destination. >> do we have any clear idea of how exactly the pilots got off course in the first place? >> other than the air traffic control tape, and if you listen to that, it's clear that they confused the runway at jabara with the runway at mcconnell air force base. they're nine miles apart, but they

beating the streets by a penny. company's delivery numbers were lower than expect. phil lebeau joins us. >> reporter: this is a third quarter where they reported better as their own guidance but not as good as any were expecting. you mentioned delivery. for the third quarter they delivered 5,500 model s, some were talking about 5,700 or 5,800. there was some of the disappointment. the gross margin, however, at 21% is a little higher than most on wall street were expecting and now they're planning to deliver 21,500 this year. and deliveries are being increased to europe and to a certain extent pulling back a bit in terms of delivering here in the u.s. what about china, who many view as a great growth market? that will start in the first quarter of next year and already elon musk is saying they're seeing great interest -- they're more on the supply side than on the demand side. >> we're supply constrained not demand constrained. we're working hard to address the construction constraint. the thing that people quite don't get is we're different in that fundamental way from other car compani
